Shea butter is a vegetable fat derived from the nut of the fruit of the African shea tree. It absorbs quickly into the skin and has good water-binding properties, so it is an excellent moisturizer. It also forms a breathable, water-resistant barrier which serves to protect the skin. Shea butter is used in Borage Therapy Lotions and Creams, ShiKai Hand & body Lotions and Color Reflect Daily Moisture and Intensive Repair Conditioners.
Oatmeal acts as a moisturizer by attracting and holding water on the skin’s surface. In addition, protein components, such as cellulose and fiber, anchor moisturizers for long lasting action which results in softer, more elastic skin. Oatmeal can also soothe the skin and help reduce redness and itching.
